Today's Track of the Day is "Up We Go" off of Lights' album Little Machines! Even after getting married to Beau Bokan, lead singer of the band Blessthefall, and giving birth to their first child, she still continued to make music. How cool is that?
When Little Machines came out in 2014, Lights told Idolator, “It’s funny because I finished the record when I was pregnant. I did take some time off to have her. [But] I mean I did vocals while I was in labor, which was crazy.”
When Idolator asked if she feels that she's grown since her first album, Lights said, "I’ve grown in a lot of ways — as a musician, as performer, as a songwriter. I learned things about songwriting that I never knew before. I’m a firm a believer in putting something out before you can get something in, and you look back on the last album and think, 'that was my end result.'"
She continued saying, "And my voice has changed over the years, probably from all the live experience. I used to play music at home, and now I’m playing for thousands of people. There’s a certain ownership you take after an experience like that instead of sitting in a closet and making music. So I’ve shaped my voice based on a lot experiences I’ve had."
